A Norwich man accused of murdering his girlfriend and then living with the corpse for six days is said to have used Shake and Vac to cover up the smell of her decaying body.
Claire Roberts died after being strangled for up to five minutes, a court in Cambridge has heard. Paul Hubbard, 39, denies killing the 28-year-old at the flat the couple shared.
When police eventually discovered the body, it was covered in a light dusting of Shake and Vac.
I feel very sorry for Ms Roberts, who met an untimely end at the hands of a lunatic, but I have to say that Shake and Vac comes out of this looking very good. I used S&V when I was a cleaner and was instructed to by my employer, and frankly I’d say it was a toss-up which smells worse, a decaying corpse or the product itself. That said, companies are always looking for a new demographic to sell to, and I think this court case could offer the makers of S&V a whole untapped target market: psychopaths.
